Hello and welcome to the December issue of Horsemanship Journal, it's hard to believe that we are already on the final issue of 2018.
In this issue, we have the next instalment of Calming Signals, this time Rachael Draaisma looks at stress indicators. We also launched our first podcast of Rachael's articles, so if you haven't already, head over to our website to listen to Horsemanship Audio.
We have a packed issue with great features from our team of authors/trainers: Ross Copper continues his 'getting it done' series with some helpful advice on handling the hard-to-catch horse, Bev Walton continues her 'Why Groundwork' series, this time focusing on Leadership Skills, Gary Witheford has some effective procedures for stress-free winter when horses are stabled for longer, Alessia Pagani looks at the daunting task of finding an equine partner and Franklin Levinson looks at Equine Assisted Programs and Therapies.
In November, I attended the first Horsemanship Showcase, a great event that is set to grow. It was inspiring to attend an event dedicated to Horsemanship, and it was lovely to speak with existing subscribers and some new ones. We are already planning and looking forward to next year’s event.
From all of the team at Horsemanship Journal - have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!
